    Therapists and Educators Praise "Please Explain Anxiety To Me"

    "On any given day, around thirty percent of my patients have
    anxiety related symptoms. The simplicity and completeness
    of the explanations and treatment of anxiety given in this
    book is remarkable. Defining the cause, treating the core
    symptoms, and most importantly bringing it to a child's level
    accompanied by wonderful illustrations, is an incredible
    feat. I will definitely use this book in my practice."

    Zev Ash, M.D. F.A.A.P., Pediatrician

    "Anxiety is, of course, a complicated neuro-physiological
    process but it has been reduced to understandable terms
    in this brilliantly illustrated book for children. I would go
    even further and say that there are adults who could benefit from the straightforward approach."

    Rick Ritter, MSW, author of "Coping with Physical Loss and Disability"

    "This excellent book is perfect for parents to read and
    discuss with their children. It's also perfect for school
    professionals to use in the school setting."

    Herb R. Brown, Ed.D., Superintendent of Schools
    Oceanside Public Schools, New York

    "...A charming--and calming--explanation of anxiety
    that will help both children and their parents turn their
    internal worry switches to the OFF position."

    Ellen Singer, New York Times-acclaimed
    bestselling author
